Proficiency Exam Information
The week of March 5, 2012, is crucial for high school students in the Clark County School District. It is when high schools will administer the High School Proficiency Exams (HSPE) in mathematics, writing, reading and science.
Students are strongly encouraged to prepare for the exams and attend school on the test days. Juniors and seniors who have already passed the HSPE in math, science, reading and writing, along with all ninth grade students, should check their school’s testing schedule and attendance requirements.
Sophomores, juniors and seniors who still need to pass any portion of the exam – math, reading, (writing – juniors & seniors) or science – are advised to be at school on those test day(s) and ready to go.
CCSD’s HSPE campaign will include posters in schools and a ParentLink telephone message.
Students can prepare for the math portion of the test by utilizing a tutorial at mathtest.ccsd.net.
